To raise the new, one must raze the old. For the better part of the past decade, Los Angeles producer/DJ Jerome Potter has utilized his creative efforts toward LOL Boys, a collaborative project that was sparked via an online message board with likeminded DJ Markus Garcia. Undoubtedly a fruitful endeavor, debuting numerous buzzworthy EPs and becoming among the most in-demand DJs in the LA club scene, the LOL Boys recently reached their climax with the release of their most acclaimed record to date, the Changes EP, and have since announced their decision to put the venture on an indefinite hiatus. From the ashes of LOL Boys though, rises Jerome Potter's newfound solo enterprise, Jerome LOL. And now, with the ability to contribute to the entire greater whole rather than just half, Jerome LOL is set to continue right where LOL Boys left off: further exploring uncharted spectrums in modern dance music while still maintaining the unique, Internet-fueled aesthetic.
Widely known as The Godfather of Techno, Juan Atkins had founded the genre himself with two other Belleville High School classmates, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May. Since those times he's defined the game with countless successful projects including Model 500 and Cybotron. Flash forward to 2012, you can find Juan Atkins touring the globe and still playing anywhere from Ibiza and Berlin to festivals like Movement and WMC.
